    I was in Baltimore on business some years ago and found it to be a pleasant and hospitable place. I particularly enjoyed the Inner Harbor and the ballpark. I guess things have changed there. Not too much, I hope. Good luck with your endeavor.

      Thank you! There are a few good spots: the Inner Harbor, Mount Vernon, Federal Hill, Fells Point, etc. I'd be glad to show you around should you visit Baltimore again.

        Yes, I have signed up. I look forward to meeting you and the others. I'd love to get more folks out this way to get involved. Since MoCo is the ATM of the state and all....

        waste of time except for some social interaction. The rest of your lives will be spent in a country slowly deteriorating, as in AS. Unfortunately. Wait till the tides are going out before trying to keep them from coming in. From the looks of it, people on this forum hate Donald Trump, even though he is the only one who could possibly beat Hillary.

    Objectivists can be found almost anywhere. I live in The Peoples Republic of California and there are even a few here. Rational thinking knows no boundaries.

      I lived in Commiefornia for 60 years. Now I live in the People's Republic of Oregon. But I live East of the Cascades where people are a little more Objective.

        Hey, I used to live in St Ths VI too ! ( a long time ago, before I paid much attention to politics) But I'll bet you that the business owners have a good chance of being more aware, at least. Barbary Coast and The Greenhouse still there ?? :)

          No, it's cronyism at its worst. In many cases you can't even open a business without paying off the inspectors, or someone in licensing. And if you rub one of the inspectors the wrong way, you've got years of having to toe the line with their ridiculous and often illegal regulations. Ex: "You can't cook food in this bar - it's too close to the road." But there are food trucks all over the island that cook right ON the road all the time. Barbary Coast is long gone, but the Greenhouse will likely be here forever.

    Here's some ancient history related to the launch of this new entity. In the late 1960's there was a group titled, IIRC, Washington D.C. Students of Objectivism. It thrived for some years and drew members from D.C., Maryland and Virginia. The group cratered after the Rand/Branden split with some members aligning with the respective sides. A particularly rancorous debate occurred centered around the issue of what to do with the remaining assets of the group (there had been dues assessed and collected). Anyway, the group disbanded. Good luck on the new venture.

      Thank you for the historical information. I joined the Charm City Objectivist Society in 2013, and the group already existed for several years. It's a very fun social group of amazingly intelligent individuals. We'll see what we can do as a more formal Objectivist organization.

        It sounds like a lot more fun than the old group the dissolution of which was very very painful. Old wounds have healed, I suppose, with the deaths of both Rand and now Branden. Celebrate their ideas.

    Nice idea, but its way too late. This country is doomed to descend into socialism until it gets BAD enough that enough people will question the philosophy behind it. Thats not going to happen anytime soon. Look at Venezuela- how much worse than THAT does it have to get before they see the light.

    Promoting Objectivism is like trying to keep the tides from coming in. One would be better off waiting for the tides to start going out before acting.
